    About Me

    Hi! My name is Mikel, I'm originally from Manchester but have lived in Bilbao, Spain, most of my life. I am a video game composer who's recently graduated from RCM, London, with a master's in Composition for Screen. I'm moving out to LA, California, next year to pursue a career in the gaming industry, so I've decided to take up teaching in order to fund this move and obtain my visa.

    I'm passionate about music and value the craft of classical composition as well as technique and general musicianship as a pianist. I'm a chill guy and happy to tailor our lessons according to your needs, whether you're doing it for fun, an exam, or pursuing a career in music. Equally, I can plan out lessons to follow a step-by-step process to ensure you're equipped with all the necessary skills, knowledge, and resources to tackle your goals.

    Look forward to hearing from you!

Adapted to the students needs and preferences. So whether you are keen to learn classical repertoire and take ABRSM grades or simply want to improve your skills and enjoy a stimulating hobby, I can help you. Homework will focus on the achievement of specific goals set for each lesson so that the students progress. BIO: Silvio, born in 1986, is a pianist, composer and educator originally from Italy. He began studying classical piano at the age of eleven and went on to major in piano at the Conservatory of Lecce, graduating with full marks in 2005.

    Music Theory - how to read music, understand it completely, and use it for performing, composing, learning.
    No matter where you are in your musical journey, theory is necessary to gain musical freedom. Even knowing the basics allows an aspiring musician to start creating arrangements, compose, transpose, read music better, look for different colours in harmony, and much more. I have designed a course that will bring students through the aspects of theory, notation, harmony, structure and form to help them become more fluent in reading, composing or performing.

    Piano Lessons with the Best Colombian Young Pianist!
    Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia. I have a Master's degree from Liszt Ferenc in Budapest, Hungary, and a Master's degree from Columbus State University in the United States. Besides my career as a pianist, I have over 10 years of experience in teaching Piano, music theory, and history for all ages and categories. Even if you are a beginner we can do it. I have a personal method where I combine both classical and commercial repertoire depending on the student’s preferences. I usually play four hands with my students as well and organize at least one concert a year with all my students where they can meet and share their experiences. If you are an enthusiast about Piano and competitions, we can also work on that together, I will guide you through all the steps and support you all the way, we can also play together.

    Aleksandra
    Classes of singing jazz, pop and all other kinds of modern music in Copenhagen
    Aleksandra is a trained singer, singing teacher and choir conductor from the Academy of Music in Gdansk and Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya in Barcelona. She took to the stage in her childhood and has been teaching music for the last 6 years. For several years she was a chorister of the prestigious Polish National Youth Choir and leader of Vocal Quintet Solifonia. Currently, she is a choir conductor and the founder of CHOIR CLUB in Korskolen. What can you expect from her teaching? She believes that singing can be passion, a communication tool, a means of therapy and so much more: more than you can imagine! In her classes, you will learn key vocal techniques as well as learning to understand your voice. You will discover the deeper meanings of the songs you sing as you seek to express them to the world. As she is working towards becoming an Accredited Teacher of IVTOM (International Voice Teachers of Mix) she focuses on delivering teaching based on the Mix principles: by mixing the chest and head voice you receive the full benefits of “both voices”: the natural and powerful sound of the chest voice, and the beauty and range of the head voice. As a singer learns to sing using both of these resonances and trains the vocal folds to stay together, it is possible to vocalize smoothly and evenly from one register to the next. The relationship of the two elements working together will create an even, smooth vocalization and, as a result, eliminates the “breaks” in the voice. She has a good knowledge of playing the piano, so you can sing along to her accompaniment or accompany yourself under her supervision. What does the first lesson include? You’ll talk about: - your background and musical experience - all the circumstances that can influence your sound production - your needs, expectations and plans You also find out: - what your bad habits are - how you can start your singing technique - what kind of exercises will help you best achieve your singing goals Who is welcome? - Children (8+), adolescents and adults - Singers of all kinds of popular music - Students who want to learn hearing / rhythm theory - Individuals, groups and families
